When I was living in halls at uni the girl in the room next to me could only get to sleep by watching her Friends DVD. Her ONE Friends DVD.

I can now recite the thanksgiving episode where they play touch football by heart but have developed a pathological hatred for the show.

It’s a no from me pal.

Inoffensive and easy to watch. It was a lifesaver in a lot of ways when I was unemployed as it filled a lot of dead air. 3/5 would rather give a 2.5 but not an option innit

OOFT!

It’s shite lads.

Awful human beings are good value in comedy shows if the comedy is derived from how awful they are. This show expects you to root for and invest in the relationships and lives of six of the worst people on TV. It’s an enormous failing.

(It’s also not funny)

4, would be a 5 but that score is reserved for buffy, genuinely underrated for being funny, probably one of the few unifiers that will allow me to relate to others when it comes my time to move into an old people’s home

Bit of its time, but anyone giving it less than a 5 is one of those daft contrarians who thinks “The Beatles were bad, actually” is an interesting, correct opinion.

Guess it was a bad word to use. I meant it in the sense I find it impossible to feel overly positive or negative about the show.

It felt like a soap opera with jokes. Six beautiful people not really struggling very much except with their relationships with one another. Annoyed the living piss out of me.

There’ll be a lot of haterz but given that the show finished 15 years ago its amazing how many of the catchphrases/one-liners are still so commonplace

Hear any of the following and you know exactly where it’s from:

‘How you doing?’
‘We were on a break’
‘PIVOT!’
‘MY sandwich’

Etc
